Some photos of the bike on a ride behind A Mountain as for Aggies, New Mexico State University. Not sure if it is BLM land or NMSU. Very close to both.

Ooops! I added some twice.

I had an xt225 for a few years - great bike. They also had an excellent forum at http://www.xt225.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=cfrm if you have not yet visited it. I see they have included the new xt250 (Serow)

Here is the setup that works for me;
Two dirtbikes, WR 250 and TTR 125 in the back of the pickup and one TTR 90 on a motorcycle hitch carrier hung off the back of the Escape 17'. The TTR 90 plus carrier is about 180lbs. With this setup the loss of tongue weight was 25lbs. (checked with a scale before and after) I have dragged this combo up the Coquihalla once and half a dozen times to a great riding/camping spot outside of Hope. I have experienced no sway or anything else that would be of concern. A larger and heavier bike might be a problem. I did have Reace install extra bolts through the floor and frame at the rear to prevent any damage the extra weight may inflict on the camper. In order to carry all the gear needed to dirtbike safely I do mount a Thule box on the cab of the truck.

Unhappy

Photo of my son's 2008 Kawasaki KLX650 stuck in a "bog" in the Black Hills of SD in June 2008. A wet weather spring had created a bog in the forest road on a hillside. It was like quick sand, with water coming up. We had to tow it out with his Dodge Dulley Diesel. Cost $25 to get them cleaned up at a car wash in Custer.

Also a couple of photos of it after the bog down in T. Roosevelt Nat'l Park. And one of it on it's trailer on the way home after the bog down.

I plan on keeping out of boggy places with my Yamaha XL250. However, it being a lot lighter, it shouldn't get bogged down as easy.

Dennis, very nice photo of your son and the bike.

After winterizing my Scamp today, I rode up to Soledad Canyon area of the Organ
Mountains to the Day Use Area east of Las Cruces, New Mexico. It was a nice ride up, I took some side detours into housing areas just to see what was there. I took some photos at the Day Use Area, walked a little ways up the trail. Then came back down and rode up toward the Cox Ranch - Dripping Springs Area to get a few pictures of the Organs. Both are part of the BLM Area. On the way home, the sun went down. It was getting chili but not too bad. A fun ride. I want to ride over to Aguirre Spring Campground located on the east side of Organ Mountains east of Las Cruces. I am working up to a longer ride. I was wanting to make a 2 or 3 day campout up there with the Scamp, but it never worked outl Maybe later. http://www.freecampgrounds.com/detail.aspx?id=2726

Here is a link to some of the photos from todays ride as well other rides.
